So finally took video of me playing with the Panda and the stenciled face.
I think it's ok, You can see if against the background if you put it on HD.
Yes I know, I need much more practice... I'm the weakest one of all 4.

I'm good at smash, trying to improve my control right now though
before I played double, my partner can cover me and I can do smash easily
but now, I played single and my opp is pretty good at bird placement, so I need to work around not only to use my smash (if I can I want a racket that suitable for both)
I think I use shoulder more than wrist
I decide to buy Tpro, but still the BP.. should I be ok if 295?
I'm afraid that it would be too head heavy for me and hinder my racket maneuverability
I want speed while maintaining good power (unlike my arcsaber 008 that fast but lack of power)

Here is the stencil
Remember to not cut all the way around the head... Made that mistake first. Leave like 3 areas un-cut so it will hold the inner portion in place and you can cut eyes out. I come back with the ink and fill in the gaps after it's done.

I think I would go around 85.5gr
so 85.5gr and 295mm (kinda focusing on doubles since when I go back to Indonesia for good, I would play double)
thanks for your help

I like to use the N50II in both doubles and singles, specs are roughly 88-90gr @ 295mm. Most players prefer lighter rackets than me, so 86-88 would probably be a good choice for you - still heavy enough to be of use in singles, and not too slow for doubles.
@dimcorner: Nice vid Seeing your smashing technique, you probably prefer light rackets, dont you? Looks like you 4 had fun there - not trying too hard, it seemed Or at least that's my unprofessional impression, when we play a serious match, there's a lot more of grunting, stomping, jumping and diving (or at least attempts at it) involved^^ But perhaps that's because we're all posers

Anyway, feels weird to see the opponents looks effortless in defense....I'm not really used to that, normally they tense up when I get in position for the smash
Hope I can get some video footage of myself soon, although I wont be able to afford a camcorder next month - so I'd have to get someone else to do it. Hard thing to do when no one's interested in badminton around here =_=
Hey, you got a 2nd gen Ti-10? I really want one of those the 3rd gen doesn't quite agree with me. Too stiff, too head light...

Ultra Pro Review
I had some time over the weekend to play with my Ultra pros and test them to the best of my ability with my brother and here's our opinion. We have 8 Upros and the specs are as followed.
Specs: 82g-84g, BP299-301, Strung with ZM62 Platnium 25lbs. RKEP G09 ELite (pink) Overgrip over the orginal/plastic wrapper.
For those who liked the other Ultra series, this is definityly worth the $$$ and maybe panda will produce version #4 with the extra dough he earns. This racket feels exceptional, must be because of the finish on the frame. Very solid when doing clears and smashes. Defense was alot better then the previous Ultra models but that's just because my other Ultras were about 87g vs 82g-84g weight difference.
As a Comparision to the other PP rackets, this one is definitly the best racket. It excels in having the potential for a devastating smash, and with the your preferred specs and BP it could be an amazing racket to defend with. The Upro has become my singles, doubles and all around racket choice. I have cut off the strings and retired my Ultra 1,2 and Trinity 2's. Kept the Precision in service because it has an amazing swing speed and it's for one of those lazy days.
Looking forward to the Trinity Pro and maybe Precision with the same frame finish.

Damn you made me jealous for owning 8 UPros!

Panda also had another "Evil Empire" sponsored player try the UPro and he said, "Rackets with this much power never have good defense and yet this does. This racket is awesome!" He tested an ~85.0g, BP295.
